The days are starting to get shorter and colder and it seems difficult to keep your home comfortable and toasty. We’ve got a few tips that can help in addition to completing annual furnace service. These tips will complement the comfort your furnace provides.
Here are four tips for staying comfy this winter in Greensburg:
- Seal air leaks. A lot of warm air escapes your home through cracks around your windows and doors. This can be an expensive problem when you look at your utility bill. Luckily, it’s not costly to fix it. Most times, new weatherstripping or caulking is all it takes.
- Change your furnace filter. •This is important to improving your furnace’s efficiency, and therefore saving money. What’s more is that it’s incredibly easy to do yourself. Look at your filter regularly and change it when the manufacturer recommends it.
- Get plants. Houseplants are great because they look attractive, and they can actually improve your indoor air quality. Many common houseplants will absorb some of the airborne toxins that are released from everyday household cleaners, paints and other products.
- Furnace service. You should arrange regular furnace service every year. This will ensure your furnace is working correctly, and if it’s not, identify problem areas before they worsen.
